Season 2, Episode 2: Earth Advocate, Ree Shreeves of Fort Negrita


Anamarie "Ree" Shreeves is an earth advocate, who runs Fort Negrita and works closely with environmentally-driven organizations to support and promote their mission.

Ree hosts ongoing reusable menstrual pad workshops so people that bleed can take ownership of their menstrual cycles, and sells reusable pads online and via in-person events. She also co-organizes an annual earth day event called bEARTHday Fest, has taught zero waste workshops locally and at national conferences, jump-started the "Zero Waste in Atlanta" Facebook group, developed the “Atl Zero Waste Guide”, and consulted local businesses in zero waste operations and accommodations.

Ree started her zero waste habits in April 2014, and at one point, it took her 13 months to fill a 32-ounce mason jar with personal trash! Her zero waste pursuits has led to features on PBS, CNN and ESSENCE Magazine.

Ree works to create a world where design, planning and operations are rooted in abundance and net positive benefits for our future. Enjoy the chat.
